South Manchester Book Group

We're a friendly and open reading group, and we share a love of books and discussing them with other people. We meet every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch.

We normally meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis. Whilst the contagion lasts and we remain indoors we'll meet online, reading virtual books and drinking virtual flirtinis — vlirtinis if you will.

We've become rather popular recently so unfortunately aren't accepting new members just at the moment. But please drop us a line on the Contact Us form and we'll add you to our mailing list.

Our reading list, past, present, and future, appears here and a short version of what we’re reading next is here.

One of my favourite modern authors, but this is not her best. By basing it to closely on real events MA has produced a dull book. AJP

Is anybody welcome to join? I have just moved to the area and would love to join a book club. Also love Alias Grace :)

Hello - I have also recently moved to Didsbury. Is it OK to just turn up?

Just turning up is fine, we're normally sitting with some books, but if you can't spot us it could be because people are running late!

Interested to know feeling on the book from the meeting. Shame I couldn't be there due to where I live. What's next? AJP
